Harvesting Sunflowers

What were once large and beautiful...
are now dried and ready for eating. We harvested our sunflowers today. Little Madame and I sat in the backyard and just picked and opened seeds for such a long time. It was so fun.

To properly harvest sunflowers wait until the stalk is nice and brown. The tops will have best significantly by now. Cut the flower off leaving about a foot of stalk attached. Then let them dry in a cool dry place and eat. I'm going to have some fun looking for recipes to roast these bad boys. We ended up with about 8 mammoth sunflowers.I can't wait to throw some into our Granola Bars!
